Headed home again
After a month of fantastic putting and poor ball striking, this week wound up being a total reversal. I shot 69 the first round of this week's eGolf event and didn't make anything over 6 feet. In today's round I was 2 under thru 16 and basically right on the number to make the cut. Again I hadn't made a putt all day, and had just missed a 3 footer for birdie a couple holes prior. Two bad tee balls with irons on the last two holes put me in jail and led to back to back bogies to finish my round, an even par 71. What a poor taste to have in my mouth after a good ball striking week. I'm now going to miss the cut by 1 or 2, which is a shame since I really felt like I played a lot better this week. It was just very strange as I never felt comfortable on the greens. Anyhow, there were definitely many positives from this week from a ball striking standpoint and I'm now focused on the Frank Fuhrer Invitational. It's a really special event and I'm so excited to be playing in it. I've got Doug Stadler on the bag, who carried for me during my 2 State Opens and state Amateur victories. He was also on the bag last year at Q-School. I'm paired with John Aber from Allegheny CC, and I'm looking forward to playing with him. We tee off at 9:03 off of the first tee on Monday. So Pittsburgh Field Club look out!
